Sensitivity Coaching and Training

  • One-on-One Sensitivity Coaching to address harassment, discrimination, bullying, and diversity issues
  • Sessions delivered via Zoom


Traliant recognizes that situations arise when one-on-one Sensitivity Coaching is needed to address problematic workplace conduct.

In those cases, we provide personalized Sensitivity Coaching targeting harassment, discrimination, and bullying prevention, along with diversity awareness. Coaching sessions are conducted with a Senior Compliance Advisor with extensive employment law expertise. Our Senior Compliance Advisors do not simply lecture, but instead, provide this critical workplace education with a conversational tone in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Coaching Session Agenda

We tailor each coaching session with a customized coaching plan that outlines specific actions and end goals. In addition to an individualized coaching plan, a typical session may include:

  • A conversation about the corrective action taken and the workplace conduct that led to such action.
  • An overview of the legal consequences for unlawful workplace behavior and actions.
  • An explanation of harmful workplace conduct and the impact on workplace culture.
  • A discussion on how “unintentional” behavior can be unlawful and disrespectful.
  • How to create and maintain a respectful and inclusive work environment.
  • An opportunity for questions and answers.
  • A review of the expectations for future workplace behavior.

Customized Sensitivity Coaching can address a variety of inappropriate workplace issues and assist in avoiding repeat offenses and costly legal consequences.
